£663 million overspent on car breakdown cover

13th July 2005 Print

The nation's drivers could be paying a staggering £663 million more than they need to by not looking beyond the traditional vehicle recovery providers, according to research issued today by Britain's largest supermarket bank, Tesco Personal Finance.

The unique prevalence of the AA and RAC in the UK Breakdown Market means an amazing 8.2 million paying customers could be shelling out double the price for top level cover.

Allan Burns, head of Car Breakdown Cover at Tesco Personal Finance says: "This is a highly competitive market. Most drivers look for the best combination of quality and cost from their car insurance provider, and they should expect exactly the same from their car breakdown cover."

Green Flag Motoring Assistance, one of the top three companies in the sector, provides Tesco Car Breakdown Cover giving consumers the peace of mind that the value they have come to expect from Tesco is backed by proven expertise in service provision.

Burns concludes: "Customers should look for a great price as well as quality of service, and it is readily available. The traditional players in the market place are not the only providers to offer both. By shopping around consumers will see they now have far greater choice of quality and value."
